14. Walnuts

Walnuts are rich in omega 3. Starting to get grey hair? Have a handful of walnuts a day to get rid of grey hair. You may be low in copper which walnuts will deliver.

13. Flax Seed

An excellent wife who can find? For her worth is above jewels. She looks for wool and flax and works with her hands in delight. Proverbs 31,10,13. Be a Proverbs 31 girl and use flax!  It is a vegan source that has omega 3 and has agents to fight cancer,diabetes and heart disease. Another inside, outside beauty wonder. Use milled flax seed and add one tablespoon to your smoothie. To make a flax seed and blue clay mask, you need one tablespoon flax seeds,one teaspoon blue clay and 2-4 drops rosewater. First soak the flax seeds over night and add remaining ingredients in the morning. Mix the paste and apply on your face and neck for 20 minutes, wash off and repeat once a week for radiant skin.  A spoonful of flax seeds makes for aging gracefully!

12.  Green Veggies!

Warning! Vegetables can make your eyes look bright, skin glowing and just looking over all gorgeous! Kale has vitamin K and promotes healthy blood clotting so the the blood vessels around the eyes don't have you looking like your someone from the night of the living dead cast. Spinach brightens your eyes and this is the first thing people look at. Make sure then to each spinach everyday. Celery helps calm your nerves and helps prevent insomnia so you can get your beauty sleep! Make a celery juice before bedtime. It helps minimize menopause symptoms. Helps you loose weight for a trim body! Broccoli is very high in antioxidants, the vitamin C helps in collagen production and the vitamin E helps protect against UV radiation damage.A added bonus is broccoli also helps to prevent cancer. Avocado, so yummy. This is probably my favorite veggie. For lustrous hair make a hair mask once a week using avocado leave in 20 min. Eating green vegetables daily will have an overall effect on your health and appearance.

11. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

 Cleopatra's secret glow was a concoction that had olive oil in it. Olives have always been one of my favorite foods!! Sophia Loren once shared her beauty secret, she loves taking olive oil baths. To prepare an olive oil bath simply add 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and you are done! Another thing you can do to get the olive glow is to put in on in the shower after you have used your body soap, let it rinse off. Your skin will feel like a baby's skin! You can also use it to clean mascara off. Don't forget to use it in your salad for an inner glow.

10. Salmon

Salmon is one of the healthiest of proteins.The pigment that makes the fish pink is called astaxanthin, it fights free radicals that damage cell membranes and DNA that cause the skin to age. Dr. Perricone recommends eating wild salmon daily for a nutritional face lift. 

9. Red grapes

Red grapes have resveratol in them which helps speed up cell energy production so that skin looks more vibrant. Pack yourself a bag of delicious red grapes to work to take to get the great benefits of resveratol!

Blueberries were ranked number one in antioxidant activity by the U.S. Department of Agriculture compared to 40 common fruits and vegetables. Berries are packed with vitamin C. They help prevent cancer and keep your mind sharp. Help yourself to a half cup and add in your yogurt or cereal each day. Also remember what TuPac told us, "The darker the berry the sweeter the juice.

Oh yeah one of my favorites. I am addicted to this stuff. It is packed with antioxidants, prevents cancer,helps to loose weight,boosts the immune system and wards off colds. It also helps with hair loss. It hinders DHT(which stops hair growth). It also helps to reduce depression.  Forget the coke and make a chilled green tea drink.

The main ingredient in bone broth is collagen! Collagen is what maintains skin's elasticity and firmness and promotes smooth and supple skin. It has protein for strong hair and promotes hair growth. You don't have to wait in the kitchen for hours making this anymore. They now sell bone broth protein powder which may be more convenient for you. Go on and drink yourself a cup of collagen!

5. Coconut 

Coconuts are very prominent in my mom's country, Venezuela. Coconut oil might be the most popular natural beauty item online.With countless beauty methods to use coconut, it deserves to be number 5 on the best food beauty awards. Don't forget to drink coconut water for its rich electrolytes and keep hydrated!

4. Raw Honey

Proverbs 24:13  My son, eat honey,for it is good, and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste. Another Cleopatra favorite. Make a honey mask and leave it on for 20 minutes. Do once a week for glowing skin.Honey in moderation is good internally and externally. Raw honey can combat seasonal allergies and combat bacterial infections also full of antioxidants.It is extremely moisturizing and soothing so it can create a glow.

3. Pomegranate

 Song of Solomon 4:3 Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon,your mouth is lovely.Your temples behind your veil are like the halves of a pomegranate. Pomegranates have been symbols of good health, fertility,longevity, and prosperity. Pomegranate seed oil deeply penetrates the skin and is loaded with omega 5 which helps lock in moisture and keep bacteria out. Make a serum for your face with pomegranate seed oil. Add a couple drops of frankincense and myrrh to it.

Eating beets and drinking beet juice can have profound benefits to your skin,eyes,heart and brain. High in folate beets stimulate cell production to prevent premature aging.It fights against cancer and helps with eye diseases.Lets cheer to daily glass of beets!

1. Kombucha!

Kombucha is my new obsession and I am so loving it. It is properly called the"Immortal Health Elixar" by the Chineese. It improves skin tone, texture and brightens the skin! Woo Hoo!  It also combats fine lines and wrinkles. It's a beverage made by fermenting tea and sugar and then utilized as a functional food.The solution has a colony of yeast and bacteria which start the fermentation process as soon as it it's mixed with sugar. After the fermentation process it becomes carbonated. I love carbonated drinks so this is a bonus, yay. It also then contains a load of B Vitamins, probiotics, en-zines,vinegar and acids which are extremely beneficial for health and beauty!

There it is for the 2017 Beauty Food Awards! Miss Kombucha took the crown! In the bible Esther was in a beauty contest and went through rigorous beauty treatments. In Esther 2:8,9 it says,  When the king's order and edict had been proclaimed,many girls, were brought to the citadel of Susa and put under the care of Hegai. Ester was also taken to the king's palace and entrusted to Hagai who had charge of the harem. The girl pleased him and won his favor. Immediately he provided her with beauty treatments and special food. If this list of beauty foods is too overwhelming to take in right way. Take one thing on the list to incorporate into your life each week.  By the end of the list you will feel like you are Esther with her weeks full of beauty treatments to make you feel like the princess that you are. 

Stay Beautiful!
